Infuriating has been the line of Democrats defending Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying that the Trump administration is running concentration camps on the border with Mexico. Even more infuriating has been the Democrats who have affirmed her comments. Now, one more has weighed in.

Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson echoed AOC's comments, saying the actions of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is no different than the actions Nazi Germany took against Jews during the Holocaust. 

According to The Daily Caller, during a campaign stop at Southern New Hampshire University, Williamson said, "There are some people who would say to me, 'now Ms. Williamson, I think this Jewish analogy, you’ve really gone too far there. This is not the same situation at all,' But ladies and gentlemen, some of those people will be deported to places so dangerous that it actually is no different."

Williamson, who is a liberal author and activist, made these comments after President Trump announced that ICE would begin removing millions of illegal immigrants from the country.
